Capt. Quid’s Treasure Quest slots — WagerWorks
Capt. Quid’s Treasure Quest is a five-reel slot with 15
bountiful paylines and a top award of 50,000 credits. Available in
multi-denomination and multi-currency, this game is suitable for all legal
online gambling jurisdictions.
Treasure Quest Bonus symbols on three or more reels, in any position, initiate the free spin bonus. Start with two free spins and a one bonus multiplier, plus five free picks on the treasure map. As players uncover treasure, more free spins and bonus multipliers can be earned.
To start the bonus, the player chooses any glowing “X” on the first island on the map. An “X” may contain either a number of additional free spins or a multiplier boost value. It may also contain an extra pick or an advance arrow that takes the player to the next island on the map.
Players continue to pick until they run out of picks or reach the last island on the map. When no more picks remain, the map will reveal the remaining chests (which are not earned).
Earning the Treasure Quest Bonus with four or five Treasure Quest Bonus symbols increases the number of advance arrows and extra picks available.
The top award of 50,000 credits is won when maximum credits are played and five Capt. Quid’s Treasure Quest symbols are displayed on any win line.
